Featured Article - Vitamin C                 

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is responsible for countless functions in the body. Most people are aware that vitamin C is great for helping to ward off colds but it has many other important function as well such as lowering blood pressure, relieving stress, keeping the immune system healthy and producing collagen. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant. One function that vitamin C provides is producing collagen. Collagen helps to heal injuries such as broken bones, lesions, sprained joints along with many other injuries. Because of vitamin Cís healing capabilities, it is thought that this vitamin can help muscles recover faster and better after a workout.

Creatine - Featured Article at Naturalmuscle.CA

Most people will say that bodybuilding supplements are vital to any bodybuilder's training program. Among the top of the bodybuilding supplements is creatine. Bodybuilder's believe that supplementing creatine into their diet helps them achieve bigger strength gains. Creatine is one of the most widely used and sought after bodybuilding supplements. As a bodybuiler I consistently interact with people supplementing their diet with creatine.

So what is creatine anyway?

Creatine is already inside each of us. Creatine is produced by the liver, kidneys and pancreas. Creatine is responsible for the energy inside the muscles. Once inside the muscles it is converted to creatine phosphate and eventually in to adenosine triphosphate (more commonly referred to as ATP). ATP is the muscle's energy source and is responsible for the contraction of the muscle. Once this energy has been exerted (muscle contraction) then ATP becomes ADP. This is when creatine phosphate and ADP create ATP and the cycle begins again.
